Addressing Misinformation on DOE Appliance Standards


MYTH: Incandescent light bulbs are brighter and less expensive than LED bulbs.

LEDs consume 75% less energy and last up to 25 to 50 times longer than incandescent lightbulbs. Last year, DOE took action to increase access to LED bulbs by announcing rules to implement the Congressional efficacy standard which would encourage the manufacturing of LED bulbs and improve their availability to Americans nationwide. These rules are expected to save Americans $3 billion per year in utilities and cut carbon emissions by 222 million metric tons over the course of 30 years.
